Joy Ike — Making Music to the Glory of God

 

Making Music to the Glory of God

Joy Ike

What does it look like to make music to the glory of God in a culture of three-minute and 30-second radio-friendly pop songs? In a Kiss-FM world, new songs rise to instant popularity overnight and disappear just as quickly. In a K-LOVE world, songs often stay vague, shallow, and devoid of true authenticity. In this workshop, Joy will share a bit of her journey in music-making as a daughter of Nigerian immigrants, a publicist, an untrained musician, and as someone who wrestles to find connections between the sacred and secular while navigating the art world through a Christian worldview. Joy will also discuss the Christian’s obligation to excellence in art for the glory of God and for the souls of man.
